What compels someone to leap from the fashion industry into architectural glass? Necessity, as Bernard Lax will tell you. He and his wife were building a house and wanted the front of the house to look like a glass shoji screen, so he learned about glass laminating and used rice paper inside glass as a substrate. Using glass as a design feature was similar to what he knew from the fashion industry: the material helps define the design.
Flash forward 23 years and Pulp Studio is recognized as a leading manufacturer of technically superior architectural glass. The company’s latest innovation: DermaGlass™ is highly durable and light-weight, resilient for exteriors and facades yet flexible for decorative interiors.
DermaGlass™ is 1.3-millimeter thin, yet more durable as 6.0 millimeter fully tempered standard glass. The beauty of DermaGlass is that Pulp Studio is able to shape and bend the glass—even around columns, enabling architects and designers to use it in more creative ways.
“There was a void in the decorative glass market for something very thin and light that provides exceptional strength and durability”, said Bernard Lax, founder and CEO of Pulp Studio. “DermaGlass™ weighs so much less than traditional glass which makes it perfect for indoor applications like elevator cab panels.”
DermaGlass™ panels fit together seamlessly, providing architects, developers, and builders with the perfect solution when architectural glass is needed.
